“I stayed with my process this weekend, I focused on not getting ahead of myself. The three-day tournament was very tiring, I was feeling really dehydrated. I made sure I drank a lot of water and got to bed early. The three day tournament was great preparation for college golf. This summer I’m going to focus on my process. I will take it one shot at a time and keep playing tournaments, I just will stay driven,” Kozak said.

HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) continued the 2015 Fall Season with the Laurel Springs School Major Championship at Mission Inn.

Lino Galdin of Nesmy, France, was victorious in the Boys 15-19 Division at Mission Inn Resort after he carded a tournament total of 3-over, 147.

During the final round on the El Campeon Course at Mission Inn Resort, weather conditions became challenging with the wind picking up with gusts of over 20 mph. Galdin was able to get off to a steady start and turn in 1-over, par 36 to maintain a one-stroke lead heading into the back nine. After a double-bogey on hole No. 11, Galdin temporarily gave up the lead, but bounced back with birdies on holes Nos. 13 and 17 to finish one stroke ahead of the field and claim the title. This was Galdin’s first Major Championship and third victory of the Fall 2015 Season.

“I was striking the ball well this tournament,” commented Galdin.

Finishing in second place at the Laurel Springs School Major Championship at Mission Inn was Tennoshin Ogawa of Ichinomiya-shi, Japan, with a tournament total of 148. Ogawa fired an even-par, 72 in the final round earning him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, which goes the boy and girl who record the lowest final-round score in every IJGT tournament. This was also the lowest score of the tournament regardless of division.

There was a three-way tie for third place with a tournament score of 152 between Ono, Takahiro Nojima of Shibuya-Ku, Japan, and HaoHua Zhang of Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.

In the Girls Division, newcomer Navika Kuchakulla of Orlando, Fla., earned the Laurel Springs School Major Championship crown with a tournament score of 5-over, 151. Kuchakulla earned the victory in comeback fashion with a final-round score of even-par, 73.

Kuchakulla started the day trailing first-round leader Ximena Gonzalez of Queretaro, Mexico, by only stroke. Kuchakalla’s deficit actually widened to three strokes after the front nine in the final round. She put on a clinic to close out the tournament making three birdies and six pars to finish with a 3-under, 34 on the back nine. This outstanding performance vaulted her into first place and gave Kuchakalla the Girls Division title.

“It feels very good to play my first event and play well enough to win. The first day the conditions were tough, but today I adapted well to the course,” said Kuchakalla.

Gonzalez finished in second place with a tournament score of 154. Tracy Lee of Seoul, South Korea, ended the event in third place with a tournament total of 155.

She carded three birdies in round one and two more in round two to finish with five total.

Aidan McCloskeyAidan McCloskey (left) of Northborough, Mass., carded a 163 tournament total to earn his second consecutive Boys 14 & Under Division title. He won the IJGT Oldfield Junior earlier this month. The secret to McCloskey’s success this weekend was his iron game. “The best club in my bag this weekend was my 8-iron,” he said after the final round. “I hit it pretty good; this whole tournament I always seemed to have it.”

Matthew Camel of Greenwich, Conn., and Keegan Vaugh of Myrtle Beach, S.C., tied for second with 166 tournament totals. The duo had identical scores of 81 in round one and 85 in round two. Vaugh carded three birdies to earn the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award for the Boys 14 & Under Division.

Cipolla, Ono & Littlefield among those to nab IJGT Player of the Week honors – May 4, 2014

NORTHEAST TOUR

VICTOR, N.Y.- The IJGT returned to Ravenwood Golf Club for the Rochester Open at Ravenwood on May 3-4, 2014. The course is a favorite of the players in the northeast and led to a strong field. Although round one saw light rain, the conditions were much better for scoring than on Sunday during round two. The final round saw temperatures only getting up into the mid 40’s with gusts of up to 50 mph. Despite the tough conditions, many players managed to shoot impressive rounds, including Peyton Steigerwald of Penfield, N.Y., and Maren Cipolla of Lewiston, N.Y.

 

PEYTON

Steigerwald, who was playing in his first tournament of the year, secured a second-place finish in part to an impressive final round 73. Steigerwald had a solid round on Saturday, shooting a first-round 80, highlighted by 12 pars.  On day two, the Penfield, New York, native shot the low round for the tournament, firing an impressive 73. Facing tough conditions, Steigerwald managed two birdies on the front nine. His final round showed consistency again, with 13 pars and only one bogey and a double bogey.  On both days of the tournament, the 2015 graduate made par on the 10th through 16th holes. For his great round on day two, Steigerwald secured the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award for the boys. We wish Peyton the best of luck and hope to see him soon.

 


cip

Cipolla, playing in just her third IJGT tournament, had a strong finish thanks to her consistent play throughout the weekend. In her first round, she never scored higher than bogey, en route to a score of 83. Going in to the final round, she was just four strokes off the lead and in contention for her first IJGT victory. The high winds caused trouble for all of the competitors, but Cipolla was again consistent throughout the round and avoided any high numbers. While the winds caused a lot of difficulty on the par-3 holes over the weekend, Cipolla played them especially well at just three over par. She finished the weekend with a total score of 170 and her second top 3 finish. We wish Cipolla the best of luck throughout the rest of the season and into summer.

 

SOUTHEAST TOUR

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – The IJGT hosted the IJGT SC Callaway Jr. World Qualifier at the challenging Golden Bear Golf Club in Hilton Head Island, S.C., May 3-4, 2014, as the 2014 Spring Schedule nears the end. The Jack Nicklaus inspired course is true test with tough greens, narrow fairways and many shot-altering trees. Taisuke Ono of Tokyo, Japan, and Jasmine Chee of Hong Kong, China, were up to the challenge and earned themselves IJGT Player of the Week honors.

OnoIn his 11th tournament of the 2013-2014 IJGT season, Ono finished his first round at a 2-over-par 74, five shots behind leader, Parathakorn Suyasri of Chonburi, Thailand. Ono was not satisfied and was hoping for the coveted opportunity to play in the Callaway Junior World Championship. Ono came out firing during Sunday’s final round, beginning his second round on the front nine at 4-under par, 32, with a stretch of 3 birdies in four holes. Ono finished round two with nine pars, five birdies, and four bogeys to finish 1-under, with tournament scores of 74-71—145. His 145 tournament score left him to faceoff with Suyasri in a sudden death playoff for the chance to compete in the world’s largest junior golf tournament, the Callaway Junior World Championship. Although Ono played exceptionally well, Suyasri came out victorious in the playoff. Ono’s overcame the different obstacles to post a final round of 1-under-par to earn the Clazic Low Final Round Award. We congratulate Ono on his exceptional performance in his personal best finish of the 2013 -2014 IJGT seaso, and look forward to seeing him compete in the 2014 IJGT Bridgestone Tournament Of Champions, May 24-26, 2014, in Orlando, Fla.

CheeIn the Girls Division, Chee trailed by five strokes after round one behind leader, Yuki Nakayama, of Kawasakishi, Japan. With a round-one score of 78, Chee found herself in eighth place. With great focus, Chee prepared mentally for her final round and came back for Sunday’s final round by shaving six strokes off of her first round score, including two birdies, two bogeys and 14 pars. Chee earned herself the Clazic’s Low Final Round Award for the Girls Division, shooting an even par 72. Her determination and focus on her precision and short game elevated Chee to second place at Golden Bear, with a total tournament score of 150. Chee is scheduled to compete in the 2014 spring season finale, May 24-26 in Orlando, FL, at IJGT Bridgestone Tournament of Champions.

The course was designed by an Illinois native, D.A. Weibring, and includes a stretch of holes that is set upon the Rock River, made for an exciting and challenging event. Connor Littlefield of Waukee, Iowa, and Ashley Childers of Mt. Vernon, Montana, both have received IJGT Player of the Week honors.

LittlefieldLittlefield faced tough conditions during the first round of his first ever IJGT event, shooting 12-over-par 83 in the Boys 15-19 Division.

In the second round, Littlefield only carded three bogeys, while also knocking in three birdies and 12 pars. He finished the round with an even-par 71, a 12-stroke improvement over his first-round score, to earn a share of second place with Matt Henderson, of Des Peres, Montana.

Final Results from the Auntie Anne's Pretzels Junior at Shipyard Golf Club

 

Nimmer’s clutch birdie captures victory
Ruiz victorious in Girls Division

The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) hosted the Auntie Anne’s Pretzels Junior this weekend at Shipyard Golf Club. Possible thunderstorms threatened play on Sunday, but the weather cooperated and the juniors enjoyed beautiful weather all weekend.

Bryson NimmerBryson Nimmer of Bluffton S.C., took home the Boys 15-19 Division title with a 1-over-par 145 two-day total. The leaderboard was packed going into the final round, but ultimately the tournament came down to the final hole with two of the KENTWOOL Low Pro winners—Nimmer, and second-place finisher Charlie Spencer-White, also from Bluffton, S.C., who were tied when teeing off on No. 18.

Both players left themselves with wedges for their third shots on the par-5 finishing hole. Spencer-White hit his approach to six feet while Nimmer hit his to about 12 feet. With Nimmer putting first, he was able to roll his putt in putting the pressure squarely on Spencer-White. Unfortunately Spencer-White was unable to convert giving Nimmer his first IJGT title this season.

“That shot I hit into 18 was really good,” said Nimmer. “Set me up for a birdie to win.”

Spencer-White’s solid play was good enough to earn him second place with a 2-over-par 146 two-day total. Rounding out the top three was Francisco Contreras from Caracas, Venezuela, whose final-round even-par 72 earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award. His tournament total was a 3-over-par 147.

Taisuke OnoIn the Boys 14 Under Division, Taisuke Ono of Tokyo, Japan, came from three shots down to win the division by three strokes. Ono began his round with a bogey, making his comeback all the more difficult. However, he was able to steady the ship with four straight pars. Aided by a birdie on the difficult par-3 8th hole, Ono played steady golf to charge his comeback efforts. He was able to close out his round with another four-hole par streak while everyone else faltered.

Coming in second place was Paul Schumacher of Canton, Ohio, who carded a two-day total of 161. He was able to lock up second place by playing the final six holes in even par after a shaky stretch in the middle of the round. In third place, shooting a 162 tournament total was Jan Schneider of Erlangen, Germany. Schneider tore up the par 3s on Sunday, playing the four in 2-under-par.

Ana RuizAna Ruiz of Chihuahua, Mexico, was the only player this weekend to record an under- par round, giving her the crown in the Girls Division. Ruiz’s opening-round 1-under-par 71 gave her a five-shot cushion entering the final round. After a string of eight pars in a row on the front nine, she birdied Nos.10 and 11 to get into red figures. Ruiz was able to add two more birdies on the back nine adding to her lead.

“I hit the ball really well,” Ruiz said after her round. “I hit a lot of greens and gave myself a lot of opportunities for birdies.

Ruiz continued her stellar play in the final round, recording back-to-back birdies on holes Nos.7 and 8 on her way to a 2-over-par 74 to win the division by seven strokes. A testament to her great ball striking was her play on the par 3s for the tournament, playing them in 1-under-par over the weekend.

In addition to her victory, Ruiz was awarded both KENTWOOL Low Pro and Clazic Belts Low Final Round Awards.

Phyllis Tang of Hong Kong, China and Rei Nakatani of Tokyo, Japan tied for second place with 152 tournament totals. Although the scores were the same, the two played quite differently. Tang recorded three birdies in her final six holes to surge into the top three while Nakatani was a model of consistency all weekend.

The IJGT Southeast tour will be hosting another tournament on Hilton Head Island, S.C., the IJGT AHEAD Open at Bear Creek Golf Club, May 4-5. To sign up for this Event, or others, visit IJGT.com or call (843) 785-2444.

Duke University Golf Course to host College Classic

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) is set to return to Durham, N.C., April 6-7, for the College Classic at Duke University . Held at the Duke University Golf Club , the IJGT College Classic will feature elite junior golfers from around the world competing for national recognition and IJGT Merit points.

58358c31df2920ae6482d05299294706The University Golf Course was first envisioned in the early 1930’s and on 120 acres of unusual elevation changes and mildly rolling terrain. A Robert Trent Jones Sr. design, the University Golf Course features meandering streams and towering pines. When the course opened to the public in 1957 it quickly was labeled as one of the top university golf facilities in the nation. The attention was great enough to attract the 1962 Men’s NCAA Golf Championship.

Duke University Golf Course went through major renovations in 1993 by Rees Jones who scrutinized every shot possibility and observed and considered every angle to insure that each nuance of the golf course would be subtle, yet perfectly placed. Duke University Golf Course will challenge even the best golfers testing their shot placement and accuracy around the green.

The College Classic at Duke University will feature strong competition in all three divisions.

In the Boys 15-19 Division, Lee Detmer  of Washington, D.C., returns to the tour after his victory over the field at Hershey Links last October. Matt Cheng of Taipei, Taiwan will look to take home his first IJGT victory of the 2012-2013 season after a second-place finish at the Major Championship at Hampton Hall .

The Boys 14 & Under Division features five 2012-2013 champions battling for the title at Duke University.Andre Becerra of Zapopan, Mexico arrives with two first-place finishes from last fall and five finishes inside the top 5 for the season.  Jan Schneider of Erlandgen, Germany also has two victories this season. Taisuke Ono  of Tokyo, Japan carries a more recent victory from IJGT Family Weekend  and a third-place finish at the Shamrock Shootout at Palmetto Hall  into the Event. Alejandro Santibanez  of San Luis Potosi, Mexico had an impressive victory over the large field at the Carolina Championship at Kiawah Island Resort in Feb. Andrew Spiegler of Abingdon, Va., rounds out the long list of Boys 14 & Under Division champions in attendance at the College Classic at Duke. Spiegler won the Port Royal event last Oct.

In the Girls Division, Ceha Lee  of Bundang-Gu, South Korea returns after her second victory of the season at the Shamrock Shootout at Palmetto Hal l. Lee also took home the title at the Georgia Junior at Savannah Harbor  earlier this season. Rei Nakatani  of Tokyo, Japan boasts three victories this season and will try to seal her fourth at Duke University. Erin Lo  of Mount Laurel, N.J., returns after her victory at the Labor Day Classic at Hershey Country Club in Sept.

The College Classic at Duke University will begin with tee times starting at 8 a.m. off Nos. 1 and 10 on Saturday, April 6, and will conclude with an awards ceremony recognizing the top 3 players from each division with trophies and tournament gifts immediately following the final round on Sunday, April 7.

In addition, the male and female who post the lowest opening round score will receive a pair of KENTWOOL socks and the juniors carding the lowest final round score on Sunday will receive a belt and IJGT buckle from Clazic Belts.

IJGT Shamrock Shootout at Palmetto Hall – Final Results

Kim Prevails in Playoff

Lee captures second IJGT victory

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C.– The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) hosted the Shamrock Shootout at Palmetto Hall Plantation  March 16-17. Held on the Robert Cupp Course , the IJGT Event featured elite junior golfers representing 10 states and 16 countries competing for national recognition and IJGT Merit Points. The competition was tough, and the Boys 15-19 Division ended in an exciting two-hole playoff.

5f57b6e01883d80c7978e97747ebaf11Warm weather welcomed participants to the first round of the IJGT Shamrock Shootout at Palmetto Hall where GeunTae Kim  (pictured left) of SuSeong-DaeGu, South Korea carded a 2-over-par 74 to take the lead in the Boys 15-19 Division. Kim had back-to-back birdies on Nos. 2 and 3, as well as 8 and 9 in the first round. On the back nine he carded birdies on Nos. 11, 13 and 17 to level out some of his trouble holes.

Although he was leading the division heading into the final round, Kim was not without competition. Saravit Kerdsinchai  of Nonthaburi, Thailand finished the first round with a 3-over-par 75, one stroke back of Kim. Oliver Lehman  of Bern, Switzerland was just three strokes back of Kim with 5-over-par 77.

Luckily, weather for the final round mirrored that of the first with sunny skies, warm temperatures and only a slight increase in wind speed. Kim began the round with a bogey on No. 1 but rebounded with three straight pars before his next bogey on No. 5 to shoot 2-over-par 38 on the front.

Kerdsinchai, however, made a statement starting with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 1 and 2 to take the lead. With a bogey on No. 4 and another birdie on No. 9, Kerdsinchai took the outright lead over Kim with a 2-under-par 34 on the front nine.

Kim was not defeated.

Kerdsinchai struggled on the back nine with bogeys on four holes and a double bogey on No. 14. Meanwhile, Kim was even on the back nine through No. 13 until he doubled No. 14. With another double bogey for Kim on No. 16, no one could be sure who would come out victorious. Kim birdied Nos. 17 and 18 and Kerdsinchai also birdied No. 18 to send both players into a playoff at 6-over-par 150 for the Event.

The playoff started on the par-5 15th hole where both players got up-and-down for par. On No. 16, the champion was decided when Kerdsinchai knocked his first shot into the hazard just short of the par-3 16th green and Kim hit it within 10 feet of the hole. Kim won the playoff and the Boys 15-19 Division title at the IJGT Shamrock Shootout. This was Kim’s first IJGT win.

“I was very nervous for my playoff,” Kim said. “I was fortunate to win.”

6bbcc6630e13ba733c72535b0acc8241Finishing behind Kim and second-place finisher, Kerdsinchai, was Clazic  Belts Low Final Round Award winner, Peter Cho  of Koyang, South Korea. Cho carded a 1-over-par 73 in the final round to finish the Event at 7-over-par 151.

In the Boys 14 & Under Division, Tennoshin Ogawa  (pictured right) of Ichinomiya-shi, Japan took an early lead as theKENTWOOL  Lo-Pro Award Winner with a 1-over-par 73. His closest contender was Taisuke Ono of Tokyo, Japan who carded a 6-over-par 78 in the first round.

Ogawa continued his success into the final round with a solid front-nine, 1-under-par 35. The back nine was more challenging for Ogawa who had bogeys on Nos. 10 and 14, and a double bogey on No. 13. Birdies on Nos. 11 and 17 propelled Ogawa to another 1-over-par 73, for a tournament total of 146, which won him the Event and the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award. This is Ogawa’s fifth victory during the 2012-2013 season.

“I played very well,” Ogawa said. “Everything felt very good and I was comfortable with my swing.”

Finishing behind Ogawa was Kevin Ying  of Shanghai, China with 18-over-par 162. Ono finished in third place with a tournament total of 165.

13f0f7dc407a329867b9ad8411f0af94 (pictured left) of Bundang-Gu, South Korea took home the title in the Girls Division after impressive rounds both days of the IJGT Shamrock Shootout. Lee led the division after winning the KENTWOOL Lo-Pro Award in the first round with a 7-over-par 79.

During the final round, Lee carded three birdies on the front nine on her way to a 2-under-par 34. She struggled on the back nine with four bogeys and three double bogeys, but luckily her front nine was strong enough to hold her lead and get her the victory with a 14-over-par 158. This is Lee’s second IJGT victory this season.

 

“I was putting really well,” Lee said. “I am looking forward to playing in the next event at Oldfield.”

Lee was awarded the Clazic Belts Low Final Round along with Moyu Sasaki  of Tokyo, Japan for carding 7-over-par 79.  Sasaki finished second with 15-over-par 159. Finishing in third place was Isidora Quevedo  of Santiago, Chile with 18-over-par 162.
